Pictures: Lady Bay Open Gardens was a great success

Despite one very rainy day and one very sunny one, this year’s Lady Bay Open Gardens was a huge success.

Over 1,100 adults visited plus children with proceeds donated to the Lady Bay Community Fund.  In addition, garden hosts also over £1,300 for their chosen charities.

Lady Bay Open Gardens has been for many years a highlight of the summer, and with the community pulling together, we were able to successfully run it again after a gap of three years.

The volunteer committee met after the weekend for a post-event meeting, and all felt the event was a resounding success.

Visitors enjoyed meeting and chatting to gardeners over the two days, they also said that the variety of different spaces on show and the warm welcome made all the difference. The refreshments and entertainment were also enjoyed by all.

We would like to thank this year’s sponsor Rex Gooding, Moores Nurseries and Garden Centre and John A Stephens for their support and to Nottinghamshire County Council and Rushcliffe Borough Council for their contributions towards printing costs and of course to all the homeowners who are taking part this year.
